Fuck you both – Pineapple has always been the best.

We wouldn’t even have Skydiving if Pineapple didn’t take the first jump.

You obviously don’t read the website: They gave Kanye West 808′s 7.6. They gave Lambchop Mr. M Best New Music. And who gives a shit about Airborne Toxic Event anyway? I’m not defending Pitchfork, but if you want to criticize, please have some idea of what you’re talking about.

Who else thinks that Major Lazer and Amber Coffman’s “Get Free” is criminally low on this list?!

I like Pineapple’s earlier stuff, but I think Skydiving has been more consistent over the duration.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

Big yawn. I dunno, is it saturation with all thse lists or it’s really boring. Oh no, that Call Me Maybe turd not in the top 5 as I predicted but still their list this year is a big, big yawn. All the same shit… All the same songs on every list (Purity Ring, Grizzly Bear etc. – basically the singles from BNM’ed albums), obligatory Frank Ocean circlejerk, token hip-hop shit in top 10, a couple of Top 40 tunes and Grimes on top. Oh well

Also really really REALLY glad we live in a world where the word bitch has not only been normalized but seen to be something totally acceptable. Well done.. rant over.

Pitchfork…. anything to do with Kanye West or Pavement = 10/10, anything involving Lambchop =6/10, anything involving Airbourne Toxic = 2/10.

Everything that insufferably pretentious website does falls precisely into that spectru,

maybe we can get spin-off hip-hop site, k. really this inane ghetto stuff is starting to get annoying, you just should unserstand that hip-hop is a niche genre (like metal or hardcore punk) and since I’m not 13 year old black guy from San Diego or something I can’t truly comprehend the greatness of this pinnacle of human achievement, the masterpiece of the song named ‘Fuckin’ Problems’. Don’t think that I’m trolling or trying to get most downvotes ever recorded, this garbage is not even discussing. This is not a music, this is a vulgar, kitsch trite as well as 90 % of hip-hop is.

“I’m the shit, niggas mad cause I’m smooth puffin’ zig zags
Tell ‘em quit the riff raff bitchin’ with yo bitch ass”

Grandiose. What a poet, that guy,

I’d love to rag on the top spot this week, but admittedly that video/song was a lot of fun if not cheesy. You can have your T-Swifties this week, Stereogum.
